I have just over 23,000 miles on my MKZ and there is not much life left in my tires. Very disapointing mileage for Michelin tires (245/40 R 19), very disappointing for any tires. I do not drive my cars hard and i rotate about every 4,000 miles. I would expect better tread life that what I am experiencing.
What is your experience on your 2013 or 2014 MKZ?
Any suggestion for a tire that would get better mileage?
Posted this in a different thread so I just cut and pasted it here...
Just replaced the Michelin MXM4 OEM at 30,000 on my 2014 MKZh with the Cinturato Perilli P7 Plus in a 245-40-19 for under $900.00 installed. I can say without a doubt that they are super quiet and smooth on the road. Maybe the Michelin had gotten a bit noisy with the wear, but it was a noticeable difference between the two tires and I'm very happy with my choice.
As a 6k mileage update on the new tires and am SO happy... it's such a nice ride and so quite. I'm not sure I remember what the OEM's felt like new, but it was/is such a noticeable difference between the worn OEM's and the Perilli, it's almost like a new car. One note, the Perilli can be a bit difficult to get balanced correctly, so don't be shy in going back to have them adjusted. Kauffman tire gave me that warning and I did go back one time for a small adjustment on the front right, but since then it's been smooth like butter.
Tread warranty is supposed to be 70k... so let's hope it last more than the OEM's
